Unbelievably, despite dropping points away to Livingston, Celtic have extended the points lead over Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

Neil Lennon’s team were definitely below their best against Gary Holt’s outfit this evening, rescuing a 2-2 draw in injury time thanks to Tom Rogic.

However, we have now moved 13 points clear of the Ibrox side after they suffered an embarrassing defeat at home to relegation-threatened Hamilton.

Outspoken pundit and Celtic hero Chris Sutton was quick to weigh in with a full-time verdict, insulting Steven Gerrard’s team by saying they are ‘lacking balls’, the complete opposite to the Hoops in his view.

His former teammate John Harton was quick to revel in the situation too, urging Celtic to now win the league before the Scottish Premiership split.

While Lennon will undoubtedly be drilling into his team that the league title has not been won yet, it’s looking increasingly likely that a ninth successive title is on its way to Celtic Park.

That’s what fans will be dreaming of right now anyway, even in advance of two upcoming Glasgow derbies.

This is a night that could have easily ended differently for Celtic given our errors in Livingston.

The last-minute point coupled with our rivals’ collapse is massive in the context of a title race that is rapidly turning out to be a one-horse affair.

All the momentum remains with us and it now feels like more of a countdown to our coronation, rather than a question of if we’ll win the trophy.
